RM 1 - Welcome

Reading an overview of the Music Notation system (like Jazclass BT 1 and BT 2) is interesting and useful, but it does not make you an instant music reader. Learning to read music requires that you practise reading and playing from written music.

mnmf.jpg I have therefore adapted 10 lessons from the Music Notation Course (on CD or as download) for online use. All 10 Lessons will be online simultaneously.
This is for you a great opportunity to get started on this most essential musical skill.

After the first few lessons you will perhaps realise that reading music is not so difficult after all. You may also have gained sufficient determination and enthusiasm to continue your music reading efforts.
If that proves to be the case the Music Notation Course will be an inexpensive and excellent companion on your road to ultimate success.

RM 2 - Transposing Instruments

For most exercises there are three different Audio Demos. Make sure you listen to the ones that are in the pitch of your instrument.

  • Bb instrument demos match the correct instrument pitches of the clarinet, trumpet, tenor sax and soprano sax.

  • Eb instrument demos match the correct instrument pitches of the alto sax and baritone sax.

  • C instrument demos match the correct instrument pitches of most other instruments (keyboard, guitar,bass, flute, trombone, violin, recorder, voice, etc).
